The lighting master plan is intended to emphasize the importance of Neuruppin as a cultural centre with an attractive historic townscape and to enhance the quality of life in the evening and night hours in the long term. To this end, practical and functional aspects of outdoor lighting in the town centre will be investigated and new lighting criteria’s will be created. On this basis, a lighting concept that harmonises the aesthetic aspects of urban lighting with the needs of public safety, functionality and recreation, will be developed. The lighting master plan is primarily a strategic document with a conceptual character. It is to be understood as a framework plan for subsequent design decisions on public lighting. Design criteria and guidelines provide concrete indications for future lighting design in the city.
